    Regular Adverse Weather (Accidental) Traveller
    • You can tell when I am travelling across the Irish sea by ferry - the weather is horrendous. I don't know why but I always fear ferry crossings anyway. i just don't feel well but this last time, on the Superfast Stena, was a really pleasurable experience. I booked Premium lounge access which, despite being used to it, was the best I have come experienced yet. Food was fresh and good quality, drinks on tap, comfortable seating. My only issue is the restrictions placed on WiFi access limitations (unless a fee is paid) and the rates for getting a mobile phone signal -again, not cheap. So for those reasons I would take issue - the cost is high enough already - but the sailing was, despite a 2-3 hr delay due to storm whoever - was the smoothest I have ever known. How do they do it. Thanks guys. I am gradually getting used to it even if I don't like sailing.
